Meatball Hash Brown Bake
3/4 cup crushed saltines (about 20 crackers)
6 to 8 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp salt, divided
1 1/2 tsp pepper, divided
1 pound ground beef
1 can (10 3/4 oz) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted

1 package (30 oz) frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
In a bowl, lightly beat eggs. Stir in cracker crumbs, garlic, 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper. Crumble beef over mixture; mix well. Shape into 1-in balls. In a covered skillet over low heat, cook the meatballs in a small amount of water until browned; drain.
In a bowl, combine the soup, sour cream, cheese, onion and remaining salt and pepper. With paper towels, pat hash browns dry. Stir into the soup mixture. Transfer to a greased 13″x9″x2″ baking dish.
